A teaser has arrived for upcoming event series The Comey Rule, which is based on former FBI director James Comey’s best-selling book A Higher Loyalty.

It centres around events surrounding the 2016 US presidential election and its aftermath.

The picture above? That’s Brendan Gleeson as Donald Trump, and the teaser trailer below reveals more of how uncannily accurate his portrayal of the current US president looks.

Meanwhile, Jeff Daniels plays Comey. The two-part, four-hour series also stars Holly Hunter, Michael Kelly, Jennifer Ehle, Scoot McNairy, Jonathan Banks, Oona Chaplin, Amy Seimetz, Steven Pasquale, Peter Coyote and Kingsley Ben-Adir.

The Comey Rule will air in Australia on September 27 and 28.
